Our Story

Rita Walls Optometrist was started by Rita in 2011. Located in George in the Garden Route, we have grown our shop into a unique looking space where you can feel at home. We offer thorough eye tests and stock the latest fashion in eyewear. We pride ourselves in doing eyewear differently!



Rita is an expert at matching frames to a face. People close to her joke that she first sees a persons eyes and frames before anything else!

Rita has 7 years of optometric studies behind her name (3 years Optical Dispensing & 4 years Optometry). She started the business in 2011 in George.



 As a psychology student Melenie has a healthy sense of humour and is always keen to “debrief” over tea and cake. But if you really want to get her talking, ask her about her cat, Moira, and the prospect of getting a hairless Sphynx cat!



Lauren studied a BA in Visual Arts and has worked as a flight attendant for Qatar. With her creative flair and exceptional people skills, she is always keen to chat about finding the perfect frames for you!

free vision screening

If you need to update your drivers license (PDP or standard drivers license), pilots or skippers license, we do a free vision screening and give you a certificate for the relevant department. This screening includes a visual acuity, visual fields and colour vision test.

free glaucoma screening

We do free eye pressure tests to screen for glaucoma. There are no symptoms with glaucoma, until it is too late. So it is important to get your eye pressure measured regularly – especially if you have a family history of glaucoma. If you are a Discovery member you can get 2500 vitality points if you get your eye pressures measured.
